CHURROS

During my holiday to Bombay this time, I visited this Spanish dessert joint with friends and tried out their speciality called Churros for the first time. The first look of it reminded me of chakli/ muruku. The taste however was completely different. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I could not resist trying to make it at home.  Found a recipe for it on www.desifiesta.com and it was so very easy to make. Ideally you use a piping bag with a star nozzle to pipe out the churros, but I did not have that, so used a murku press which works just as well, except for the thickness.

This is what you’ll need

For the Churros

All purpose flour: 1 cup

Water: 1 cup

Sugar: 2 1/2 tbsp

Oil: 2tbsp

Salt: 1/2tsp

Oil: For frying

For the sugar coating

Fine sugar: 1/4 cup

Cinnamon powder: 1tsp

Let’s get cooking

1. Bring the water to a boil in a sauce pan. Turn off the flame and keep aside.

2. Add the flour, sugar, oil and salt to the water when it is still hot and using a spoon mix it well until it forms a soft dough.

3. Place this dough into the piping bag or the murku press (which is what I used) and press out the dough into the hot oil. Cook until nicely brown.

4. Drain on a kitchen towel and keep aside.

5. Prepare the sugar coating by mixing the sugar and cinnamon powder.

6. Roll the fried churros in the sugar mixture until well coated.

7. Serve warm on it’s own or with chocolate sauce.
